Publisher's Summary

Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirotis London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton, the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess' patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not.
The prize seems well worth the risk-but this time Marcelline's met her match. Clevedon can design a seduction as irresistible as her dresses; and what begins as a flicker of desire between two of the most passionately stubborn charmers in London soon ignites into a delicious inferno...and a blazing scandal. And now both their futures hang by an exquisite thread of silk...

Worth the Credit....Fantastic

If you could sum up Silk Is for Seduction in three words, what would they be?

Worth the Credit!

What other book might you compare Silk Is for Seduction to and why?

I do not know that I could compare this book. But Ms. Chase is right up there (in my humble opinion) with Lisa Kleypas and Mary Balough. Stellar work. I've only had the pleasure of enjoying two of Ms. Chase's books, but I would buy more if they were available on Audible.

Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?

Well, Lucy "Errol" was my favorite character and that's saying a lot because Ms Reading was brilliant as the Duke. Lucy was such a charming character "maniuplative little minx" as her mother refers to hear lovingly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I am listening to it again, for the 3 time since my purchase last week.

Any additional comments?

I LOVE this story, it's believable, entertaining and well written. Let me just say, I would happily purchase the remaining books in the series when they become available. (I'm praying to Audible Gods). Ms. Chase is a fantastic writer, she makes your fall in love with her charachters. I cannot wait to see what happens next!

Please make the rest of Ms. Chase's books available for me to enjoy. I do not have time to read for plesaure as I am a gradute student. But Audio books make it possible for me to read (listen) while driving and working out.

Great performance. Classic plot

If you could sum up Silk Is for Seduction in three words, what would they be?

Wonderfully embroidered romance

What other book might you compare Silk Is for Seduction to and why?

Lord of Scoundrels of course. Same author, same period atmosphere, with meticulous attention to the details of the culture of the time, same tensions--between classes, and between the sexes. And showing how passion can transcend these differences. With help from plucky, talented, and beautiful heroine, bringing errant aristocrat to heel, using his weak spot for love. The plot also reminds me of Austen's Pride and Prejudice

What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

Everything!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They will reap what they sew !

Any additional comments?

Plot very artfully builds to its climax
